Does liver disease cause itching?


Answer by  Camelia (662)

Not to my knowledge. Itching could be the result of an adverse reaction to the medication prescribed for the liver disease.

yes. It can cause itching because of the metabolism disorders that are common in liver disease suche as the accumulation of bilirubin crystals in the skin, because of its high blood level.

Severe itching is one of the symptoms if you have liver disease but the most common symptom is jaundice or yellowing of eyes and skin, decreased appetite, gray colored stool and dark urine. Bloating is also experienced as well as excessive thirst and frequent urination and pain in the back is likely present.

Liver disease in and of itself does not cause itching. However, when liver disease affects the bile duct system and bile builds up in the blood this can cause you to experience itching.
